This independent bookstore on a Rehoboth Ave is chock full of great finds. It has a great selection of fiction and non fiction, and I especially like the Staff Pick aisles that include staff commentaries on cards. There is also a children's toy section and a great gift shop full of beach-inspired items. Staff are knowledgeable and friendly. Doggie friends... More

My family loves this store! There is something there for everyone! My children always want to come to this store to spend their vacation money. We always have our children pick out an local themed book and then they are able to pick out a toy. They could spend hours in there! I also love the store. They have great... More

This is my "must stop" on our annual trip to Dewey and Rehoboth trip. I am always amazed at the amount of things found in this quaint shop. The signed copies of new releases and other books are always my first stop. Then I just wander through books, games, decorating items, clothing, and cards. It is always a surprise what... More

We went to Browseabout Books for their Story Time this past weekend. This past holiday weekend it was "Meet Pete the Cat". We arrived around 9am since that is the scheduled time for story time. I entered the store by the entrance closest to the kids area & books versus the gift shop/coffee shop. Once in the store, no one... More

A little cramped but a wonderful spot that I didn't expect in this area. I found a lot of great pieces and souvenirs in the bookshop and the attached gift area..they also have a coffee counter inside and out..a nice touch. It was definitely unexpected, and I hope you don't just breeze past it.

This is a great little gift shop/book store! My favorite part was the amazing children's section. Not sure I've ever seen such a well stocked and diverse selection! They also have story times for the little ones. the adult selections were good too. And I always love when bookstores post employee recommendations. I could have browsed for hours!

The Book signings are always a good time. Some of the authors are very entertaining and it is a great way to find out how people go about writing a book. Sometimes the reasons are quite surprising. You can always pick up a great gift in their gift department. They have really interesting little things , as well as major... More

Stopped with the kids since they seem to want to go into every book store we pass (must be teaching them right!) Great selection and average prices.
